Young Thug Says He Is "Fashion" & Plans to Go Deaf for 2018

“I don’t think I can even get in no deeper. I wake up and breathe this.”

By //Music 

Young Thug made his presence known during this year’s New York Fashion Week festivities. The “Ride For Me” rapper helped “shut down” Philipp Plein’s star-studded Fall/Winter 2018 show alongside his girlfriend Jerrika Karlae, who walked the show. The pair also made an appearance at VFILES’ seasonal showcase. To provide a more in-depth look at Thugger’s recent NYFW experience, we linked up with the rapper at the aforementioned VFILES show to get a few of his thoughts on fashion, music and more.

“I am fashion,” Young Thug tells us. “I don’t think I can even get in no deeper. I wake up and breathe this.”

Elsewhere, the Atlanta native opened up about wanting to turn clothes he saw on Discovery Channel programs into fashionable outfits, being a trendsetter, and wanting to learn sign language. “I got a deaf brother,” he shares. “So, I want to act deaf for a year … I ain’t going to put out no music this year.” However, he does mention a possibility of dropping the long-awaited, oft-delayed Hi-Tunes album.
